OCZ have introduced a new high performance series of DDR3 memory modules today in the 2GB "PC3-12800 Flex XLC kit".


Combining blistering performance with optimal cooling, these 1GB modules are rated for 1600MHz speeds with tightening timings of 6-6-6-18 (good for DDR3 at this speed!), OCZ's proprietary XLC heatsinks are also used on these babies.


For further information you can view the press material here or head straight to the product page folks.


The newest PC3-12800 modules feature OCZ's Flex XLC (Xtreme Liquid Convention) heatsink that delivers superior heat dissipation via a hybrid copper and aluminum design alterable between passive air or water cooling. This unique "flexible" design gives enthusiasts the option to run the modules passively or water cooled via the integrated liquid injection system. The concurrent use of both technologies (water-cooling) promotes maximum heat dissipation, allowing the memory to operate at extreme speeds without the high temperatures that inhibit or damage the module's ICs.
